Baudelaire and Balzac: Echoes and Affinities

Publication: Philologica Jassyensia, VII (2), p. 293-307
Publisher:Institutul de Filologie Română „A. Philippide”
Abstract:The article proposes to study echoes of Balzac’s L’Enfant maudit and La Peau de chagrin that reverberate in Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du mal at the stylistic or visionary level. In the cognitive view espoused here Baudelaire’s dynamic patterns, word formulations and images, have reached their final status of a radically new creation, but at the same time they betray the existence of echoes harking back to the energy and tonality of a previous vision. These echoes represent affinities that surface at the level of verbal organization in Baudelaire’s poems and reflect the novelist’s and the poet’s visionary kinship.
Key words:the Proustian concept of style as vision, intertextual echoes, cognitive view, the role of memory, dynamic patterns, dynamics of the creative drive
